Hindi actor Vivek Oberai has been staying in a village in Kadalore since 31st December and
carrying out relief measures to the Tsunami affected people there.

He had adopted a village and had announced that he would provide each of them with house and utensils to start their life afresh. (more detailed news follows about vivek oberais villages)

Following the example of Vivek Oberai, Shah Rukh Khan is also going to adopt a village in Tamilnadu. Earlier he met the Prime Minister along with the director Karan Johar, and the actress Rani Mukherjee to give Rupees One and half Crores jointly towards Prime Minister relief fund.

"The Prime Minister had declined to accept the aide for Tsunami affected people from foreign countries. This is the right step in the right direction. In India there are hundred crores of people.

If they come forward to help the affected people, that would be more than enough", says Shah Rukh Khan. Apart from his donation to the Prime minister Relief Fund, he said that he is going to adopt a worst affected village in Tamilnadu and help them.

News about Vivek Oberai's Villages:

Aiswarya Rai's lover, well built Hindi actor, apart from this, what one knows about Vivek Oberai?. He is the God and the Savior for the people of Devanampatti village in Kadalore, Which was devastated by Tsunami waves.

Swami Sinddhananada Saraswathi from Rishikesh has undertaken the task of providing relief and rescue operation in the Devanampatti region. He is doing this through his service organization. The young actor, Vivek Oberai had come here with Swami on 31st and has been actively participating in relief works. His full time work was to give solace and help the affected people. He is not ready to wind up the mission after some time, like everybody else. So, he had adopted the village in the name of a trust named after his mother Yasothara.

"I will give back everything you have lost except the lost lives".

This phrase of Vivek Oberai, have instilled the lost confidence among the survivers. Vivek has intensified his efforts to help people.

As a beginning, he intends to build six hundred houses for those who have lost their houses. Till these house are ready 170 huts are being built at the cost of Rs.4,500 each. The pooja for this, was conducted, Swami Sindhananda Saraswathi and Vivek Oberai has participated in this pooja. Before the Pooja, Swamiji had conducted prayers for those who died in the tragedy. The people of Devanmapatti were touch and over whelmed with the feeling of gratitude about the fact that, an actor, whom they didn't even seen in screen have come to help them at the hour of need.

"Vivek Oberai is a rare find amidst the ruins of Tsunami".

Aishwarya rai's face is beauty personified. Her lover's heart matches her beauty.

Vivek Obroi Real Life Hero

Oct 18, 20002

An uneasy silence rents the air. As Paras Ram breathes, gasps for breath punctuate his broken sentences. Exhaling an excruciating pain are the stitches on his body and his fractured arm. The seemingly simple walk to the loo at the Defence Colony taxi-stand, where he lives, is an ordeal. But Paras Ram is not complaining. He is grateful to be breathing heavily, to be still alive... when he could just as easily have been dead.

For Vivek Oberoi, Saturday night was just another night till he, in a Ford Ikon with two friends, Shaad (the director of his forthcoming film Saathiya) and Sameer, took a fateful turn past the Le Meridien. Fateful, because the turn might not change the course of his life, but it meant a lifeline to the life of Paras Ram.
Flashback to midnight, Saturday. A Tata 407 rams into Paras Ram’s Maruti van taxi near the Le Meridien. So ferocious is the impact of the collision that the lorry turns turtle and the front portion of the Maruti van sinks into it. The driver’s door of the taxi is jammed and the steering wheel cramps Paras Ram’s stomach and thighs. Within seconds, he is soaked in blood, which trickles down from his forehead, nose, mouth, arms.... Paras Ram has no memory of when he fell unconscious; he does not have any recall of the harsh truth that the lorry-driver and the two foreigners who were in his taxi fled the scene — deserting him in the dead of night to stage a struggle for survival.
A frantic phone call to Delhi Times by an eyewitness to the accident, Lajpat Nagar resident PK Das, gives life to a heroic tale set against the backdrop of a near-death experience for Paras Ram. ‘‘Vivek rushed out and tried to force open the driver’s door of the taxi. Finding the door jammed, he smashed the glass of the window with his fists to reach for the driver,’’ recounts Das, ‘‘Meanwhile, Vivek’s friends tried to enter the van and ease the pressure on Paras Ram, who was trapped against the steering wheel. The three of them finally managed to pull him out of the van. In the meantime, the police reached the spot. But before sub-inspector Om Prakash and his team could notice his presence, Vivek had departed as swiftly as he had acted to save Paras Ram’s life.’’
Paras Ram was alone — and unattended — when he needed help the most. But sometimes, fate defeats the imagination of fiction — and answers the call for a saviour — a saviour who is the exception to the rule, who stops to lend a helping hand, who reaffirms our faith in humanity overcoming a societal tendency to move on without blinking an eyelid when a fellow human being is a stranger in danger. ‘‘But there is nothing heroic about what I did,’’ says Vivek, ‘‘I tried to save someone in distress as any other human being would try to do in a similar situation.’’ The ‘aura’ of star power is reserved for the silver screen. In real life, Vivek Oberoi disregards advice from friends to protect his popularity and avoid getting involved with a hit-and-run case. Because, deep down in Vivek, there still exists the goodness intrinsic to all of us which we have managed to conveniently camouflage. The proverbial friend in need does exist — Vivek Oberoi proves this. For, easy as it is to reflect in hindsight and dismiss his action as what any other person in his place would have done, not many do what he did, least of all those elevated to the status of star.
As he attempts to rest on a charpoy at the taxi-stand, Paras Ram’s mind tries in vain to recall his brush with death. He still doesn’t know who pulled him out of his van and called the police. Investigating officer Om Prakash is unaware of the identity of the person who hurt his hand while breaking the window of the van to pull Paras Ram out of the death trap that was his taxi. ‘‘I will survive my injuries and make my life matter to others — I owe it to the person who saved me,’’ says the voice of 52-year-old Paras Ram’s heart.
Perhaps, Paras Ram and Vivek Oberoi will never meet again. Perhaps, they will. But if Paras Ram sees him on the screen, he will undoubtedly think to himself that the two sides of the coin read the same — in both reel life and real life, Vivek Oberoi is a hero.

Schumacher Donates $10 Million

F1 world champion Michael Schumacher donated $10 million (US) to the relief effort following Boxing Day's devastating tsunami disaster in south Asia. The German's pledge, announced by agent Willi Weber on a German TV fundraiser for the UN Children's Fund and German Red Cross, is the biggest so far in the world of sport, and possibly of any individual.

"What happened to so many people is so unfathomable and horrible," 36-year-old Schumacher, the Ferrari driver, said. "One cannot simply blind it out -- we're suffering with them."

Earlier, the International Olympic Committee pledged $1m, the English Premier League $2m, while German soccer squad Bayern Munich offered $400,000. The Asian death toll is at 146,000.
